Last Week’s Picks*:

last week's stock picks

FRGI: +0.08%
CLSN: -8.25%
JWN: -1.60%
VHC: +20.41%

A good pick for $VHC which gained over 20%, I took the trade last Monday and closed out on Friday for a profit. there may well be more gains ahead. It was not such a good five days for $CLSN which always looked like a risky trade.

This week should be a busy one for traders. We will see the Fed’s Beige Book, rate calls from the RBA, BOE, and ECB, and then non-farm payrolls on Friday.

With markets already hovering near record high there is a real chance of volatility.

Here’s this week’s picks:


Clean Energy Fuels Corp. $CLNE

Clean Energy Fuels designs and operates natural gas fuelling stations, as well as supplying compressed natural gas fuel for vehicle fleets across the US and Canada.

The stock gapped higher last week on heavy volume taking the company through the $6 barrier. Much of this was due to a positive earnings report with revenues up over 30%.

Cytori Therapeutics Inc. $CYTX
